All of the adults in the EYFS unit also support us in our play and in accessing the EYFS curriculum.
EARLY YEARS FRAMEWORK/CURRICULUM
Our curriculum and practice is led by the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. We learn through seven key areas of learning which include:
3 Prime Areas:
Communication and language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
4 Specific Areas
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
When planning and guiding children’s activities, we reflect upon the different ways that children learn and include these in our provision. The 3 Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning are:
Playing and exploring – engagement
- Finding out and exploring
- Playing with what they know
- Being willing to have a go
Active learning – motivation
- Being involved and concentrating
- Keeping trying
- Enjoying achieving what they set out to do
Creating and thinking critically – thinking
- Having their own ideas
- Making links
- Choosing to do things
Our provision activities consider the individual needs, interests, and stage of development of each child. They are reviewed and changed regularly to provide challenging and enjoyable experiences in all of the areas of learning and development. In Sunflowers, activities will focus strongly on the three prime areas, which are the basis for successful learning in the other four specific areas. They reflect the key skills the children need to develop and learn effectively, and become ready for their next stage in EYFS.
